Tom Thumb and Other Stories.
McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1904.
“Clear the road! Get off the bridge! I’m coming!”
. . . the Durham started on a run, bellowing as he went and hooking cows, calves, dogs, or anything else that came along, roaring at them to get out of the way and not to stand taking up the road when their betters wished to pass.
“Clear the road! Get off the bridge! I’m coming!” roared the Durham.
“Who are you that thinks he owns the earth?” quietly mooed back the long-horned bull”
“You’ll see if you don’t get off that bridge and give me some room to pass, and tell your herd of common cows to get to the side of the road out of my way.”
